    How to Easily Migrate Data Without Downtime
    Alfons Michels, Sr. Product Marketing Manager & Alex Best, Dir. Technical Business Development - DataCore Software Recorded: Dec 12 2018 60 mins
    Are you forced to replace your hardware? Are you thinking about different deployment models for your IT infrastructure, e.g. hyperconvergence?

    Well, any change to your IT infrastructure is a major challenge, and typically requires complex data migrations, resulting in service downtime, overtime and more money to spend - but are the results worth it?

    Before you start your next project, think about an alternative approach to rip-and replace, like software-defined storage. You may ask yourself, why should that help me? And there are many good reasons, but an essential one are the unrivaled chained migration options.

    If you're wondering what these benefits can mean to you, just join our brief webinar, which also includes a live demo and audience Q&A so you can see how simple it is to bring software-defined storage into your IT environment and leverage chained migration. Among others, you'll be able to discover:
    • How to integrate software-defined storage into your environment
    • How to migrate data between totally different types of storage
    • How to change towards hyperconverged during regular business operations
  • Need-to-Know Benefits of Having Continuous Data Protection in Your Storage
    Need-to-Know Benefits of Having Continuous Data Protection in Your Storage
    Steve Hunt, Dir. Product Management - DataCore Recorded: Nov 29 2018 46 mins
    IT organizations require a data protection solution that can combat against the ever looming threat of malware or ransomware, and data corruption, which can have a significant effect on day to day operations. When that data protection capability is included in their storage solution, it allows IT organizations to reduce their overall costs, while maximizing their ability to protect all data they are responsible for.

    This is why DataCore Software created Continuous Data Protection (CDP), or the “undo button” for your data. In this webinar we explain and show how DataCore Software’s CDP feature can deliver one-second restore granularity and provides the best Recovery Point Objective (RPO) of any data protection solution.

    NVMe and all-flash systems can solve any performance, floor space and energy problems. At least this is the marketing message many vendors and analysts spread today – but actually, sounds too good to be true, right?

    Like always in real life, there is no clear black or white, but some circumstances you should be aware of – especially if you intend to leverage these technologies.
    You may ask yourself: Do I need to rip and replace my existing storage? What is the best way to integrate both? What benefits do I receive?

    Well, just join our brief webinar, which also includes a live demo and audience Q&A so you can get the most out of these technologies, make your storage great again and discover:
    • How to integrate Flash over NVMe in real life
    • How to benefit of some Flash/NVMe for your entire applications

    How to Avoid Disasters via Software-Defined Storage Replication & Site Recovery
    Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Sep 25 2018 41 mins
    Shifting weather patterns across the globe force us to re-evaluate data protection practices in locations we once thought immune from hurricanes, flooding and other natural disasters.

    Offsite data replication combined with advanced site recovery methods should top your list.

    In this webcast and live demo, you’ll learn about:
    • Software-defined storage services that continuously replicate data, containers and virtual machine images over long distances
    • Differences between secondary sites you own or rent vs. virtual destinations in public Clouds
    • Techniques that help you test and fine tune recovery measures without disrupting production workloads
    • Transferring responsibilities to the remote site
    • Rapid restoration of normal operations at the primary facilities when conditions permit

    Zero Downtime, Zero Touch Stretch Clusters from Software-Defined Storage
    Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing, DataCore Software Recorded: Aug 22 2018 53 mins
    Business continuity, especially across data centers in nearby locations often depends on complicated scripts, manual intervention and numerous checklists. Those error-prone processes are exponentially more difficult when the data storage equipment differs between sites.

    Such difficulties force many organizations to settle for partial disaster recovery measures, conceding data loss and hours of downtime during occasional facility outages.

    In this webcast and live demo, you’ll learn about:
    • Software-defined storage services capable of continuously mirroring data in
    real-time between unlike storage devices.
    • Non-disruptive failover between stretched cluster requiring zero touch.
    • Rapid restoration of normal conditions when the facilities come back up.

    If you’re working in a technology role in the healthcare field, whether you’re in a hospital or clinic, working in a company producing the latest breakthrough treatment or working in an organization helping patients on the financial side of their health, you know that you have unique technology needs that many other companies may not. You also know that you need technology that enables rather than hinders you, and you may be wondering how some leading-edge healthcare organizations are making this happen right now.

    ActualTech Media is partnering with some of today’s leading enterprise IT vendors to bring you a very special EcoCast focused exclusively on healthcare IT. Audience members that have an affiliation with any area of healthcare, medical, life sciences, or similar areas will be treated to a very special healthcare-specific presentation from data center technology provider DataCore.

    Join this webinar to learn how today’s leading healthcare organizations are using software-defined storage to tackle the top challenges in Healthcare IT by delivering uninterrupted data access, massive architectural scale-out, and game-changing application performance.
  • Can a single Virtual Volume (VVol) span different physical arrays/devices?
    Can a single Virtual Volume (VVol) span different physical arrays/devices?

    If you were to pose this question to your storage vendor or VMware support today, you would be likely to receive the answer: “No. vSphere does not support this.”

    Nevertheless, with the VMware certified, universal vSphere APIs for Storage Awareness (VASA) provider from DataCore you can easily achieve that with full VMware support and without VVol certified hardware today. Use of local discs alone or in combination with other storage arrays as part of the Virtual Volumes datastore would even be sufficient.

    Join our brief webinar and Q&A to learn how to make this happen.

    Discover in our expanded live demo:
    O How to setup such a solution in real life
    O How to implement auto-tiering across different arrays

    How to Integrate Hyperconverged Systems with Existing SANs
    Augie Gonzalez, Director of Product Marketing - DataCore Software Recorded: Apr 24 2018 40 mins
    Hyperconverged systems offer a great deal of promise and yet come with a set of limitations.

    While they allow enterprises to re-integrate system components into a single enclosure and reduce the physical complexity, floor space and cost of supporting a workload in the data center, they also often will not support existing storage in local SANs or offered by cloud service providers.

    However, there are solutions available to address these challenges and allow hyperconverged systems to realize their promise. Sign up to discover:
    • What are hyperconverged systems?
    • What challenges do they pose?
    • What should the ideal solution to those challenges look like?
    • A solution that helps integrate hyperconverged systems with existing SANs
